BSNL has introduced a new affordable broadband plan to the residents in Kerala circle. Kerala, being one of the largest circle for BSNL has made the telco launch this broadband plan exclusively. The new plan in question is the Rs 995 plan, dubbed as BSNL FIBRO BBG ULD 995 CS287 in the circle. This plan from BSNL doesn’t compete with the high-speed plans from private Internet Service Providers such as ACT Fibernet or Bharti Airtel because it offers just 20 Mbps download+upload speeds, until 200GB. That being said, it’s a promotional plan from BSNL and is valid for a period of 90 days from the date of introduction. BSNL is also offering an after FUP speed of 2 Mbps with this broadband plan.
Before jumping into the benefits offered by the BSNL BBG ULD 995 CS287 broadband plan, make a note that this plan is applicable only to all the users of Ernakulam SSA of Kerala Circle. Unfortunately, it’s not available in any other city of Kerala state. Moving onto the benefits, the Rs 995 broadband plan gives 20 Mbps broadband connection and offers a FUP of 200GB. Post the FUP, users will be able to browse at 2 Mbps, which is underwhelming. BSNL would have at least offered 5 Mbps of after FUP speed.
The highlight of this plan is the FUP benefit it offers. Normally, BSNL doesn’t offer FUP of 200GB with its broadband plans, but this plan is aimed at solving the issue. Additionally, the plan subscribers will also receive a free email ID with 1GB of space. And yes, this plan doesn’t offer any voice calling benefits, meaning you’ve to either subscribe to a landline plan or use the plan without any voice calling benefits.
Another thing worth noting is the telco will charge an installation amount of Rs 500 and a minimum hire period of one month applies to every new user. Existing users can also migrate to this plan. Lastly, BSNL is offering the BSNL BBG ULD 995 CS287 broadband on a long-term basis. Users can avail the plan for one year at Rs 10,945, two years at Rs 20,898 and for three years at Rs 29,850.
